Conservative commentator Ann Coulter published a column on her website claiming that Kwanzaa is a “made-up racist holiday” and its creator, Dr. Ron Karenga, founder of the United Slaves, was used by the FBI to cause division amongst African-Americans and to rival the Black Panthers.
According to Coulter, the FBI encouraged the “most extreme black nationalist organizations” to discredit and split the left. She compared it to what MSNBC and CNN do today. Coulter says the Black Panthers did not hate white people or seek an armed revolution, but the United Slaves did.
Coulter refers to Karenga as a “black radical/FBI stooge,” though she is unsure if he did so willingly or was duped. Her interpretation appears to stem from declassified documents proving that Karenga and his United Slaves were targets of the FBI’s controversial Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) and that the division between the pro-black groups (United Slaves & Black Panthers) were intentionally created by the bureau. Coulter then infers that Karenga went on to create Kwanzaa which continued to drive that wedge in the community
She says the holiday is a “nutty blend of schmaltzy ’60s rhetoric, black racism, and Marxism.” She compares it to if former KKK leader David Duke had started his own.
“It’s as if David Duke invented a holiday called “Anglika,” which he based on the philosophy of “Mein Kampf” — and clueless public school teachers began celebrating the made-up, racist holiday,” Coulter wrote.
Karenga, who is now a professor of Africana studies at California State University at Long Beach, was previously imprisoned for kidnapping and torturing women in 1971; a fact that often shared on social media this year.
“Kwanzaa was the result of a ’60s psychosis grafted onto the black community by the founder of a murderous black nationalist cult with the FBI’s seal of approval. Kwanzaa emerged not from Africa, but from the FBI’s COINTELPRO,” writes Coulter before including a jingle.
“Kwanzaa bells, dashikis sell
Whitey has to pay;
Burning, shooting, oh what fun
On this made-up holiday!”
“Only white liberals take Kwanzaa seriously,” Coulter wrote at her conclusion. “American Blacks celebrate Christmas.”
